    How'd you go? BB Flash + some dyno time might be worth it for the N52? Particularly for those considering headers.

    In preparation for the Single Turbo Kit, I am reviewing the options of going for level 10 6AT build from scratch or a DCT Swap. The DCT swap is ~4k dearer than a level 10 6AT build but the DCT swap will offer faster shift speed and for some odd reason, I have more faith in the upgraded clutch pack from Dodson than the level 10 option. No one have tried it before apart from Gintani's attempt. No update from them as yet. Anyway, I hope you guys could help with the queries below: Level 10 6AT Build - 800whp and 700wtq 1. I am based in Australia so it will be cheaper for me to get Level 10 to build a 6AT from another core instead of mine. Will there be any compatibility issue in terms of software or hardware? Based on the part number from RealOEM, the hardware appears to be the same. I am just worried the TCU in America will be different from the ones in Australia. 2. Have you replace your 6AT with a 6AT from a wreck? Did it work and what's involved besides the manual labour to replace the 6AT? I presumed programming is required to ensure your DME will work with the new 6AT TCU. Will Autologic be sufficient or do I need to go back to the dealer for programming? DCT Swap with Dodson Clutch - 800wtq 1. Anyone with insider news from Gintani on the Dodson upgraded clutch pack? Is it working or not? PM me if you will like to keep it private. 2. For this job, I am thinking of buying a whole 335iS wreck from America or the n54 DCT wreck from the UK. I am looking for someone who's willing to buy the wreck on my behalf, remove and package the parts and organise shipping to Australia. The buyer can use or sell the parts from the wreck and I will have NO entitlement on the wreck or profit after I get all the parts required for the DCT swap. I am willing to reimburse man-hours involved in buying the wreck, organising shipping, the labour involved in removing and packaging the parts for delivery to me. Please PM me if you are interested in the above. Cheers, Alex

    I think i'm going to go with a set of Avent Garde wheels, the Forgestars are to expensive for reps.

    Get a e46, look on the forums for used parts. Its hard to find another car thats better. I don't think the cayman would work, it has no back seats, that can get annoying. You may even be able to find a cleanly modded e46 m3 for sale that you can buy and have mods already.

    Just the one. It's the same car I raced a couple years back in my 159mph 135i w/ RB turbos. I'd guess he was running a couple MPH slower this time around. I have to say after doing a couple 1/2 mile races now with the M3 tune only they really move. Especially the M4s which seem to run 1-2mph faster mod for mod. I could see a bolt on M4 running 160mph with tune, race gas, and exhaust.

    So I was at the red light and to my right there is a hpe700 cts-v. I told myself that thing must be decently fast until I looked it up and feel the mighty m4 w a tune & DR is not too bad, especially when comparing the 24k of that hpe kit ;-)

    Here is a 2-year follow-up on my cluch review: The clutch behaved flawlessly over this time. It never ever slipped. But I did not launch it with drag radials more than 10-15 times. However, I did abuse it while daily driving it quite a lot. Today, 2 years later, I decided to replace my Sachs Performance 4-puck setup with a Sachs Performance organic setup with reinforced clutch cover. Why ? The main reason is that I gave up participating to drag racing events due to increasing costs of bringing drag radials from the US into my EU country (basically the price more than doubles), etc. The other main reason is that the clutch became a little grabbier than I would like and it's not ideal in the stop-and-go traffic that I am facing everyday to work. Basically it became tiring to drive, the window of slipping the clutch is very narrow and you always have to take care of this while driving. An (intermittent but mostly present) screeching sound when taking off (only in 1st gear) was also present, sometimes people look at your car and you think that they are saying "dude, your car is broken" So of course, after two years of stop-and-go driving, I expected a puck cluch to be worn, and the flywheel to be shot due to the shocks, as I read on other forums. Well, guess what: everything was in "like-new" condition (pictures below). Not the slightest heat mark on the flywheel, the clutch disc was worn 1/2mm max. and the clutch plate looked like new. What suprised me the most is that the flywheel had no play at all compared to the new one ! I guess LUK improved their flywheels recently, my previous two flywheels had quite a lot of play when removed. I almost felt sorry for the money paid to replace it - but after I drove off from the car shop the ease of driving with the new organic clutch made the switch worth it for me. However, I am not sure how much this new setup will last until slipping. If if does slip over time, I will probably replace it with the puck setup again. So basically, if you want a racing clutch that can be driven daily without getting worn, and don't mind the added grabby-ness over an organic setup, this clutch is a very good option. Pictures of the removed clutch parts below.

    Audi has been toying with the idea of an A9 range topping model for some time now. We first reported about an A9 back in 2011 when Audi stated they wanted to expand the lineup with an A9 launch possibly by 2014. Well, the car will not launch in 2014 but the concept did. There has not been too much talk about the range topping model as of late but if it were to come it might look a little something like the Prologue you see here. It is based on an A8 platform offering the same width but not as long and shorter. The effect is very similar to the S-Class coupe. Under the hood is a 605 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque version of the well known 4.0 TFSI twin turbo V8. An overboost function ups the torque to 553 lb-ft for a short period. That is quite a bit of power and torque out of the 4.0 liter powerplant and it shows Audi has headroom if they wish to utilize it. That power and torque is sent to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission which is no doubt shared with the RS6/RS7 which have already proven capable of handling the 4.0 TFSI torque even when modified. Will this be built? Who knows. It is definitely stunning and packed with technology. Namely lightweight technology which keeps the large all wheel drive coupe at 4365 pounds offering a very competitive power to weight ratio in this segment should it ever get a green light.
